The Pensions Regulator

I have received my review decision and do not agree with it

If you believe that you should not have been issued a notice, you can appeal. To appeal against a notice, the first step is to apply to us for a review. You must apply within 28 days of the date of the notice.

We will look at the information you provide and consider your application for a review.

If your review is not successful and don’t agree with our decision, you may be able to apply for another review. The application must be submitted within 28 days of the date of the notice or penalty. We are unlikely to accept another review application unless the grounds for review are different to those that we have already considered.

If the notice which has been reviewed is one of the following, or if we have refused to carry out a review of one of the following notices, you can appeal to the Tribunal:

  • a fixed penalty notice 
  • an escalating penalty notice 
  • a prohibited recruitment penalty notice

If you wish to appeal against a review decision relating to a penalty notice, you must submit an application in writing to the General Regulatory Chamber (GRC) within 28 days of the date on which the review decision was made.
